Creating the largest Techcampus... in Europe is not a one man job!

Beehive Techcampus 4.2

Hackers with a dream

We are Beehive Techcampus 4.2 and we have a dream. A dream about a breeding ground where people work on technical innovation and initiatives with a ICT-focus. A place where students can work on projects, have internships or graduate under the wings of academics. A place where startups can flourish in inspiring surroundings and receive support from a eager to learn community of of ethical hackers. A place that puts Arnhem on the map as hitech and innovative city.

That place? The former dome prison in Arnhem. A place where people used to be imprisoned becomes a place where ideas are liberated for the world.

From panopticon to hackerspace

Beehive Techcampus 4.2 has the potential to become the biggest permanent hackerspace in Europe. A hackerspace (according to wikipedia) is a community driven, often non-profit, work space where people with a common interest (often ICT-focused) meet and collaborate. Hack42, driving force and one of the initiators of Beehive Techcampus 4.2, already has their own hackerspace in Arnhem. Together we have a dream to upscale to a global hackerspace in which the hacking community can team up with ICT and tech-companies to spawn innovations.
